Thanks to the Truck Drivers

I really want to get that into my blog here: those guys are great and absolutely considerate! I’ve never felt unsafe with trucks meeting me here on the highways and byways of southern Texas. They always give me as wide a berth as possible. And if I have waved them past, they often flash a “thank you” with their rear lights. But I also try to be aware of them, constantly watching my rear mirror and moving as close to the side of the road as possible, and – by waving them past me – showing them that I have seem them and that I am aware of them. I must admit that I am much more afraid of the regular driver not being attentive and hitting me while they’re texting – or whatever else might distract them – and especially of those who believe they “own the road”.
